Right now, just about everybody has more stress than ever. Lots of people are looking into meditation as a way to cope – either as a stand-alone solution or one of many stress-reducing options. Meditation sounds so easy. But it often requires practice to become good at it, like a muscle strengthening over time.
The act of letting thoughts flow freely while practicing letting go is one more of us should spend time perfecting. CBD can help you achieve a meditative state more easily, helping to silence the storm and enhance the benefits that come with consistent practice.
Meditation is a tool that can help us relax and calm the mind. There’s a feeling of being able to “get out of your head” for a while, similar to what some people get from running, practicing yoga, cooking and other activities.
The mind likes to be in charge. Using thoughts to drag us back to what’s already happened, obsessing over past events that cannot be changed or pushing us toward into an imagined future that may or may not ever happen. Meditation helps us realize this and instead focus on the here and now.
Learning to sit with fear is one of the most powerful practices you can incorporate. By letting it wash over us we are removing its control over us and teaching our minds and bodies that this is only a passing event. OWN IT.
Calming the mind leads to calming the body. In just 10 minutes a day, this practice WILL reduce anxiety and stress, helping the body’s systems repair the physical damage they cause. Meditation is also reported to improve heart health.
Experienced meditators report more positive outlooks, more adaptability and more resilience in dealing with daily life as well as big challenges. WHY? Because they are prepared for the day, have aligned their thoughts and taken the time for themselves at the start of the day.
There’s a lot of confusion about what meditation is and isn’t. Here’s what I mean.
The are three main styles of meditation and any of them can be enhanced by using CBD oil.
Getting still in the body and mind is hard. And everything about our culture tells us to do just the opposite: see, do, achieve, acquire, opine, react, over-react and more.
CBD can help address all kinds of hurdles to meditating.
While CBD helps with meditation, you will still have to find the right dose, take it daily, do your meditation and wait for the benefits of both to start appearing.
Truth be told, I used to have trouble with meditating, judging myself as if this was something to be graded on. Then I let go and accepted as a constant practice. Now I feel its benefits to my stress level – and my life – every day. If a veteran US Navy SEAL like me can get into meditating, I think you can, too. Make yourself a priority.
Find a quiet place, get in a comfortable position where the body can soften and relax, and get started. Even if the mind races at first, or you can only do it for one minute, it’s worth it. You’ll get better at it over time. If you’d like to add CBD to make it easier to get started, or to enhance the practice you already have, check out our options.
